Thank you to everyone who supported the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka Learning Services in Huntsville through the 20th Annual Muskoka Novel Marathon. This event is now closed.

Donations can still be made to the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka at www.GiveToTheY.ca.

Over the past year, the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka and our community were dramatically impacted by COVID 19. Now more than ever, a person's ability to read, write and navigate digital resources affects many different aspects of their lives, including economic status, health, the type of job an individual obtains, and the kind of education our children receive.

With limited government funding, fundraising is a critical component in our ability to offer these essential YMCA programs and services to more and more people in our community.

The Muskoka Novel Marathon raised over $11,000!!!

Proceeds from this event help the Huntsville YMCA Learning Services adapt to the ever-growing needs of the community by providing essential programs such as:

  • Academic upgrading and specialty courses
  • Digital Technologies Training (computers, smartphones, tablets)
  • Academic upgrading and specialty courses

What do participants think of these programs?

"I have gained so much through this class. The instructor is perfect and so friendly and accommodating. I never thought I would find strength or confidence in my writing and that has changed completely in such a short time. My outlook on many things has become more positive. I am forever thankful for this class and I believe it is something so special that a lot of people can benefit from in so many ways. Absolutely amazing experience."
